 Review of Excalibur Roller Coaster @ Funtown Splashtown U.S.A.

This coaster has something for everyone. It starts out as an out and back, and finishes as a twister, and does both pretty well, but niether is outstanding. Sitting up front, and I found the the first half of the ride was an airtime filled romp, but the second half of the ride was dull and forceless. The back was just the opposite, it starts off slow, but when it hits those twists at the end, watch out, you are going to be thrown back and forth like a rag doll.

However, all of this makes for a coaster that fits very well with this park. It is not too big, not too long, and not too wild for this resort town play place.

An 8 and yet its still in your Top 10? Youve been on a ton of coasters, I was suprised to see you give this one an 8 after seeing it was one of your favorites.

Yeah, I had to update my tracker. I really like the coaster, I think it is a fun ride, but it just doesnt know what it wants to be.

This is a free form coaster. not a twister, Cyclose, out and back, Figure 8, etc. Its disigned to it into a set area and do as much as it can. thats why it has elimints of many ride styles: Twister, out and back, figure 8. But an 8 isnt a bad rating it jsut states you wish for more. for my it would be a better ending. it seems to slow down at the end.

That is the way I feel about it. The ending is a little weak, and the twister portion could still have some airtime, but it did not seem to. It is still an excellent ride, one of the best in New England, no doupt there.

I totaly agree. it put Funtown on the travil map and mad Main worth going to. Old Orchard is nothing special. Power Surge is really the best thing in the park.
